If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it can have a major impact on your self-confidence. In some cases, your dentist, Dr. Omar Damji, will recommend dental veneers to cosmetically improve your smile. This is even more likely if your teeth suffer from multiple imperfections.
Dental veneers in Atlanta, Georgia, are custom-shaped and shaded porcelain shells that are designed to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. A professional dental lab technician will custom make them to match the natural shape of each tooth. They can also be altered slightly to correct minute imperfections in the shape and orientation of a tooth.
The porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface staining from dark beverages and foods. This will help you maintain your white smile without the use of whitening toothpaste or whitening strips.
To fit you for dental veneers, Dr. Omar Damji will examine your teeth to make sure you have sufficient healthy enamel to secure a veneer. If one or two teeth have been compromised by tooth decay, old fillings or thin tooth enamel, he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. Omar Damji will then form a detailed impression of each tooth in your smile, which will serve as a guide for the dental lab technicians while they prepare your veneers.
You will be called back into Executive Park Dentistry for a second appointment to install the veneers. During this session, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing the veneers into place with a strong dental adhesive.
